The Body Shop is a cult British brand, present all over the world, and recently it is also available in our country. I was overjoyed when it finally arrived on our market because now I won’t have to bring any more of their butter from the trip. There were always orders from friends and acquaintances, so opening a point of sale made my life easier. The Body Shop in the Arena is quite small compared to the outlets in the world, but it offers most of the products from their most famous lines.
What attracted me to their products a decade ago, when these concepts were just being discovered and when that way of production and business ethics was just beginning to develop is their policy of not testing products on animals. Namely, they are one of the first companies in the world whose products bear the marks of cruelty free and community fair trade. Even today, they are faithful to that, and I always try to support such companies with my purchase and give my small contribution.
Their product that I use for years and always come back to, especially in winter, is The Body shop mango body butter. For my dry skin, butters are replaceable with any lotion, milk or body cream. Its texture is much richer, more compact and greasy than in more liquid lighter lotions and skin lotions.
Butters contain fatty acids in different proportions, vitamins and minerals, and are obtained from different plants; mango, cocoa, avocado, shea .. Cosmetic butters contain a combination of different vegetable oils and butters. They leave a kind of shield on the skin and retain moisture in it for up to 24 hours, while softening it. The skin is soft and supple and really nourished all day long.
Body butter is applied after showering and it still takes a little more effort to rub into the skin and absorb. But it pays to put in a little effort because it lasts all day! If you do not have time to wait for it to absorb in the morning, maybe 5 minutes, then apply it in the evening after showering because otherwise it could leave greasy stains on your clothes, especially those made of more sensitive materials. If you have normal skin that does not require intensive care, it can only be applied to dry areas, such as nail polishes, heels, hands, because it will quickly soften and nourish them.
The Body Shop butters are the most famous products of this brand and regularly at the top of their best-selling products. Mango butter is produced by cold pressing from mango seeds, contains mango and cocoa butter, Brazil nut oil and soybean oil, and is rich in oleic and saturated fatty acids.
I enjoy the smell of this product, it is not too intense for me, and I also like to eat mango.
The Body Shop has butter in really many variations and it’s always interesting for me to smell and try out which new ingredient they made the butter from! However, I stick to my mango favorite because it is a product that I simply can’t find a flaw for intensive skin hydration, and because of the scent I love. OK, the packaging is relatively modest, a plastic container without a protective foil from opening, no spatula to apply the product, in fact quite basic packaging, today already a bit outdated if we compare it with the packaging of other world cosmetic companies.
Body butter perfectly hydrates and protects the skin, a small amount is needed and the menu has a wonderful scent. These are the trump cards that this product has kept me with for years, especially in winter, and my skin loves it!
